The ICS Primary School starts from year 1 and ends at year 6. Students in year 1 are typically aged 5/6 years of age. Students in year 6 are typically aged 10/11years. At the Primary School we believe that activity-based and fun lessons, combined with a good blend of action-packed, creative, service-based and varied extra-curricular activities form the basis of a great education.
In the Primary School, the subjects offered are Mathematics, English, Science, Social Studies, ICT, French, Art, Religious Education and Physical Education.
For Mathematics, English, and Science, the Cambridge Primary Programme provides the curriculum framework. It develops skills, knowledge and understanding in young learners. This curriculum provides all the necessary guidance, material, and training for classroom teaching and learning.
Art, ICT, French, Religious Education, and Physical Education are based on the British National Curriculum. This curriculum promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of students at the school.
Social Studies is based on the International Primary Curriculum. This curriculum promotes great learning, great teaching and great fun in a framework of different themes that children easily identify with.
At the Primary School we believe that children learn best when they have fun. Based on this simple idea, teachers are trained to deliver lessons that invite children to participate actively, express their opinions and facts eloquently, and develop skills and understanding effectively. International Community School is a University of Cambridge International Examinations British Council Attached Centre. As such the Primary School identifies with Cambridge University in developing learners who are confident, responsible, innovative and engaged.
